Re: 14.5 tips and strategies

I don't think 14.4 and 14.5 could be more opposite body types as far as what was beneficial. Taller/power athletes did well on 14.4, whereas midget/tiny engine guys will do well on 14.5 -- I was 212...

Re: Programming for regionals.

Having made regionals the last two years and hosted 250+ people every week for the open the past two years, I can tell you that the dudes who make it have two common themes:
1. They have an insane...

Re: mile run time?

When I was just starting in CF, my first Year I was running right around 5 minutes, two summers ago I squeeked sub 5 (4.57) at ~195lbs. To be more competitive in CF I am now 220lbs, and ran a 5:27...

Re: 2013 Open, Regionals and Games Thread

Really? I thought event 6 looks like the easiest/most straight forward workout on the list. Should be quick and smooth. Team workout choices are interesting, no real 'long' team workout, I was...

Re: 2013 Open, Regionals and Games Thread

At 6'3" with a 6'9" wingspan I doubt there are many regional athletes with a higher reach (97") - I did this today and I can guarantee you that no one will be doing what you consider a jumping...

Re: Will the Central East Regionals be Televised again ?

I assume it will -- They put it as the last week, meaning they will get 4 weeks of regionals to prep and have all of the 'world records' (they so loved to talk about last year) already in place. ...

Goals, time, mindset and ability need to determine which program you feel comfortable following. If your goal is simply 'to compete' then you need to do an honest evaluation of your weaknesses, and...

Re: Regional Event 2

I would say average was around 7:20-7:40 - I rowed a 7.02 as a bigger guy, but that ~30 seconds was made up in about 10 pistols.

Re: 2012 Open, Regional and Games thread

No doubt, I think the 'older' guys have the experience, the strength and the ability to be up there. As Mikko said after last year, a lot of it comes down to who is healthiest going into that...

Re: 2012 Open, Regional and Games thread

Honestly, if you watch the "real" obstacle course it contains a double bar, up and over, and a ~20ft rope climb. These are two of the (if not the most) difficult parts of the course and they skipped...

Re: 2012 Open, Regional and Games thread

Froning is definitely on another level right now, however there are two people that really stuck out to me this weekend.

Scott Panchik and Marcus Hendren. Both were first timers to the Games,...

Re: One complaint about the Games and Crossfit in general

Go to the Games, I guarantee you find yourself saying "I wish this cap was 4 minutes less" at least 10 times. This is gonna sound bad, but the people are there to see the final heats for the most...

Re: I think nearly everyone will find this very interesting!

No I wasn't saying he needed form TO clean 135...but I noticed he WAS spending TIME doing that. I'm sure he can rip 350+ off the ground to his shoulders.

All I'm saying is that from Double...

Re: Muscle Up Advice

Work ring dips as a strength piece. Do them lower than you would think, like as low as physically possible. If you can do 3-5 strict, with a 3 second controlled lower all the way to the bottom, in...

Re: I think nearly everyone will find this very interesting!

Honestly I'm surprised no one has brought up things that he will need to compete at that level. We have a woman at our gym (and on our team) who is an incredible athlete. She was a bodybuilder for...

Re: Starting a Comp Team

Get an idea of the people you KNOW have shown interest in competing. In your weekly regimen begin scaling them up (weights, movements, reps, etc.) a few times a week.

Then on weekends we get...

Re: 2012 Opens vs. Regionals Athletes

It doesn't matter too much because the competitions are relative only to each other. That would only matter for Region to Region comparison -- but honestly, Yes...I think that would be a good idea. ...
